Georges marvellous medicines stories!

This week we used images from Roald Dahls 'Georges marvellous medicine' to retell part of the story. Then we used story maps to create our own versions of the story adding new characters. We then used our planning to write our own stories.
Can you spot the time openers, adjectives, commands and conjunctions we have used?

What were the hospitals like?

We have been investigating the hospitals that Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole worked in.

"I can smell smoke from explosions!"

"I can see smelly bandages covered in blood."

 "I can hear soldiers hurt and the fighting in the war!"

"I can see rats and injured soldiers."

More portraits!

 In Art, we looked at profiles. We talked about Mary Seacole's portrait and had a go at recreating it with chalk.

We had lots of fun smudging the chalk and our hands got very messy!

Making Up

We will be continuing our focus on kindness in R.E. this week. Sometimes, it is hard to be kind all of the time.

Can you remember a time when you had to forgive someone? Have you been forgiven?

Perfect poetry!

This week in Literacy, we have been gathering ideas to help us write a poem.

We have learnt about similes, alliteration, onomatopoeia and adjectives.

Finally we wrote up our poems and performed them to our friends! 

What a brilliant bunch of poets!

Pencil Portraits

Year 2 had a go at to drawing a portrait of Florence Nightingale today.
The technique focussed on using light and dark by shading with the pencil.
There were some very impressive results!

What Would You Do?

Linked to our learning about The Good Samaritan, Walnut Class shared their responses to a range of dilemmas this morning.
Did you decide that you would be honest? Would you tell a teacher?
